Clendening or Clendenning, Joseph, Ackley Station p.o., Elk, was born in County Monohan, Ireland, on March 17, 1827. He emigrated from Ireland in 1851, and in the year following came to Quaker Hill. Two or three years later he bought a farm and commenced a permanent residence in the township. In July, 1853, he united in marriage with Jane Clendenning, by whom he had a family of eleven children - Esther, James, Laura, Emma, Andrew, John, Nellie, Harry, Etta, and two who died in infancy. Mr. Clendenning is one of the most prominent and popular men of Elk. There is no town office but which he has been called upon to fill. There is no trust in the township that can be placed with any citizen that has not been placed with him, and in every case he has given satisfaction. Joseph Clendenning commenced life poor, but industry has put him in comfortable circumstances. He had such an education in the old country as was afforded boys there, and no more. The family from which he came were Irish Presbyterians, but he is not connected with any church society. In politics he has always been a Republican.
